To help ease the morning lunch and snack packing rush, below are the ABC's of refrigerator organization from the experts at Whirlpool brand.

  1. Get Rid of Lingering Leftovers.  Just like you clean out your closets and backpacks for new clothes and school supplies, start fresh by clearing the refrigerator. Use the three "E" rules as your guidelines – if it's expired, empty or makes you say "ew," toss it.
  2. Nobody Likes A Smelly Locker. Your fridge needs to be cleaned too! Take everything out of the refrigerator to get started and then wash drawers, bins, and compartments with soap and water.
  3. One of These is Not like the Other.  Now use your sorting skills to group similar items together, such as proteins or dairy, and begin returning items to the refrigerator.  

To help you stay organized in the kitchen this Back-to-School season, Whirlpool brand is giving away two of their newest kitchen appliances, a new Top-Freezer refrigerator and a stylish compact microwave. One lucky Facebook winner will receive both appliances by entering at www.facebook.com/whirlpool starting on Sept. 6, 2011. "Like" us on Facebook and tell us your favorite First day of school memory and enter for a chance to win on the Sweepstakes tab!*  

What's New In The Kitchen?

Whirlpool brand recently introduced two new 21 cu. ft. top-freezer refrigerators, including one with interior water dispense to help fill your family's recyclable water bottles with fresh, filtered water. The new refrigerators also feature the FreshFlow™ Produce Preserver and FreshFlow™ air filter; patented features that can help extend the life of your produce up to 25% longer and reduce common refrigerator odors.

Beyond an organized refrigerator, streamlining your countertops can save time and add space. Whirlpool brand's sleek new compact microwave has a unique rounded back that allows it to fit into corners, making it ideal for tight spaces. And just because it's compact doesn't mean this new model can't handle the dinner rush hour – it can fit a full dinner plate thanks to a glass turntable that is larger than those in standard comparable microwaves. With an integrated handle and console, blue LED display and Tap Touch controls, this modern model is a great addition to any kitchen.

*Official rules can be found on the Sweepstakes tab.
